Charlotte’s Tip: Perfect your gorgeous glowing complexion with the WONDERGLOW Face Primer before your foundation.


Mushroom Extract: A concentrated mushroom extract that firms skin. It instantly tightens pores whilst flooding the skin with moisture, for a comfortable, nourished yet flawless finish.

Genius Hyaluronic Filling Spheres: What makes Hyaluronic Acid so beneficial is its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. These “genius” spheres absorb into the skin and plump up wrinkles from within. In 1 hour skin looks smoother and firmer, plus more supple and youthful.

Super-Charged Vitamin C (VC-IP): Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that fights the damaging and ageing effects of free radicals. My Magic Foundation is the first time this new super-charged Vitamin C has been used in a foundation. With consistent use, it helps skin build new collagen (essential for youthful elasticity), reduces the appearance of age spots by 75% in four months, and reduces the appearance of acne after 9 weeks.

Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Protects from damaging rays so skin can retain a healthy, youthful look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously magic!! I have always struggled with acne and coverage with foundation this has been the best full coverage and lightest feel foundation I’ve ever used I look so flawless in all my pictures always with absolutely no dark spots showing through I love it so much! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I'm a die hard EL double wear customer so perhaps I expect too much but it didn't have same lasting effects or stay put power. That being said I was unsure what shade to go for, when I called I was asked to email my picture through and a very kind girl got back to me within the hour to confirm my shade. The foundation is lovely. Easily applied good colour, even and natural looking. It can be touched up without looking patchy which I love. Overall happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION this is my third bottle - does that tell you I like this ?? I have wasted lots of money trying soooo many expensive foundations over the years, and this is the best by far. Glides on , is never " cakey" or heavy, no touch ups needed - every girl needs this in their cosmetic collection - worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple item I could not do without my magic foundation. I have very acne prone, oily but also dry skin. It's a nightmare and I've really struggled finding the right foundation- until this one! I've been using the magic foundation for years and my skin has not had any problems with it. And it lasts all day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I have to say that the magic foundation isn't as great on my skin as others have said it is on theirs. At 51 my skin has dry patches around my nose with a little redness on the tip and I usually wear a tinted moisturiser because it's the only thing that does't show it up too much but foundations do and this is no exception. It highlights my pores around my nose too. But all foundations do and I haven't yet found a perfect one. My skin isn't that bad but I still want to look perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything except the dishes!! Best foundation I’ve bought. This goes on easily, sits nicely on the skin without caking, doesn’t dry or aggravate my sensitive skin, doesn’t clog pores and lasts all day. It is a hefty price but worth it in my opinion. What else do you need from a foundation?? Also, it’s brilliant that you get 3 samples (same colour plus the shades either side) with each purchase so you can order online, try the product without breaking the seal and therefore send it back if not quite right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Had a free product sample in shade 2 which I liked for coverage but just not quite the right shade. Thought I'd risk purchasing shade 3 and I'm so glad I did. I've never bought a foundation that covered my complexion as well as this. It's very economical to use, there's no sign of tiny spider veins and it blends all minor imperfections out of sight. Brilliant - I'm really impressed and will definitely purchase again and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Heard lots of good things about this foundation, I have combination to oily skin and want lots of coverage without the cakey feeling and this foundation does not disappoint. Aslong as I set the foundation with a powder, it lasts all day and gives me great coverage. Only slightly negative thing about this foundation is the price, but to me is definitely worth the money, and not as expensive as many other high end foundations out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Magic The coverage on this is great, without feeling too heavy! I based my shade match off of the tools on the website and it's a great match! I love that they include samples of other shades as well as your purchased shade, so you can insure a match before you break the seal. The best part: 1 pump covers my whole face. I don't break out from it (an issue with other full coverage foundations) and it doesn't break apart during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for coverage! I bought this foundation a few months ago after having lots of problems trying to find a foundation which covered my lupus rash on my face. From research I found that Charlotte developed this foundation for people with rosacea so I thought I'd give it a try. It is fantastic! Covers my lupus butterfly rash up perfectly without clumping or making the rash more noticeable! I would definitely recommend this foundation to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION After trying several new foundations out a friend recommended Charlotte Tilbury to me. As I don't live close to any stockists in order to get my colour matched I did it all online. The photos of different skin tones helped me choose the perfect match for me! The foundation is amazing and lasts all day! I'm so pleased I just went for it! I shall now be recommending to everyone too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish Straight off the bat I have oily skin. I knew that this product wasnt going to have longevity BEFORE I bought it. So why did you buy it then? Well, my skin is combination with a very oily skin with rubbish pores around my nose and cheeks. I have tried A LOT of foundations over my 40+ years and many high end brands (including EL double wear) exacerbate the problem areas. I read a review elsewhere for this foundation and bought a sample amd I was honestly amazed. I love the fact that i get a smooth poreless finish and it doesnt sink into my wrinkles. I use this in conjunction with a matte primer to maximise longevity but my super oily t zone needs mopping after a couple of hours. I have very sensitive skin and cant tolerate a lot of oily skin foundations (I'm looking at you Clinique!) so this formulation is just lovely. I'd give it five stars if it lasted just a wee bit longer but formula is designed for dry skin so its my issue really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely finish, soft, and natural looking I rcvd a sample of Magic Fdtn, 3, in my order: I never thought I could wear a fdtn on 'mature' skin which is not dewey, but I can with this one. Applies evenly, is not heavy, and looks as if you have on no fdtn. Finish is smooth, soft, natural looking, and did not settle in pores! Have found a new fdtn! Plan on buying the fdtn primer too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely texture and finish I bought this as I needed a new full coverage foundation. I was hoping this would be full coverage from the first application, however it seems to need some building to be completely full coverage. Love the texture and matte finish, and it also works really well in combination with a translucent powder without going cakey.
Date published: 2017-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I got this a few weeks ago and I love it. It’s great for combination, normal and oily skin but probably not the best for dry skin. It applies really easily and you only need a pea sized amount to cover your face. Also it stays on all day and has amazing coverage. The amount of different skin shades avaliable is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION This is the best foundation I've ever used. After years of trying to get the perfect finish, application and staying power - I have finally found it. Also I seriously have never had so many people comment on how flawless my skin looks! This has been the best beauty purchase I have ever made! Dramatic but true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coverage I have only been using this foundation for a short period of time but this is the best product I have used to date. The colour matches very well (especially with the tester packets received in previous orders) and the coverage that you get is amazing. It doesn't even feel like I am wearing any product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Dewy, Flattering Foundation I have been totally converted to this from my previous favourite foundation. It gives good coverage, yet looks light, slightly dewy and natural. It also makes my skin feel softer and firmer and I believe it is helping to even out my skin tone and pigmentation a little. It is very flattering on older skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Foundation I have been using YSL for years and after using a sample of the foundation I thought I would give it a go. For me it’s just so hard to apply, I use and brush and fingers but it really doesn’t blend well, and just doesn’t feel good on the skin. It does stay matte for a good few hours though.
Date published: 2017-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! Tried a sample of this and was blown away. I have a drawerful of foundations but this might be the one. Looks so natural with decent coverage. My skin is mid 40s, uneven texture due to acne scarring, and this really blurs and smooths and distracts from that. So glad I found it.
Date published: 2017-09-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great full coverage foundation I bought this foundation as a evening foundation when I want more coverage and it to last! I am very impressed and will be purchasing again, it is brilliant as a foundation on its own however I also have the airbrush powder which gives that truest flawless finish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION When first using this foundation I wasn't very impressed and didn't understand the hype. But after finishing applying my makeup and it settling down I really liked it. Less is more I feel when using it but it definitely needs a settling down period! Now love it!
Date published: 2016-03-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very natural foundation This foundation has medium coverage and it's very light,do not stain and does not mask effect.Probably it's perfect for those who have no serious imperfections, for those like me who has very dark spots alone is not enough, you need to apply a concelear too.
Date published: 2017-12-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION I probably bought a shade lighter than I would ideally have but difficult to judge colours on a screen rather than in real life. I would have liked to buy a small sample size first. Product very good gives good coverage without being too heavy.
Date published: 2016-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A full yet light coverage I’ve been forever searching for the perfect foUndation! And fianlly, just like magic, it’s appeared! I’m so happy with the full coverage I like yet it’s very light feeling on my skin and gives my face a perfect Instagram worthy finish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Love it....I have very pale skin and reluctant to use foundation as I never seem to get a natural look. First time using this foundation I received compliments on my make up.. It was so easy to use and blended well with my skin tones.
Date published: 2016-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION The magic foundation is great. Definitely lives up to the hype. I have large pores and I think it hides them pretty well without making my skin look to cakey. Its not too heavy either and my other make up sits better on top of it
Date published: 2016-05-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful foundation I love the silky and light texture, applys so easily. I have an oily t-zone so shall purithe airbrush powder to target this area as it did get slightly shiny in this area after about 5 hours but over all I love this foundation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY SHINY Doesn’t give very good coverage at all intact causes blemishes to appear darker. I have fairly dry skin and this made my skin so shiny and look greasy! Definitely not worth the money il be going back to my Nars foundation.
Date published: 2017-10-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC FOUNDATION Have only used 3 times. 1st use I didn't like it but the next time I used more product and got a better finish. Not as long-lasting as I would hope but not bad,hoping primer helps. Good colour match, using the online tool.
